Roasted Fennel, Carrot, Beet

This week’s CSA is the first time for fennels! I know it’s a hard vegetable to figure out what to eat with but I recently roasted it and it’s surprisingly very good. It softens it without losing the taste. I used beets and carrots but you can add potato or tomatoes and it’ll offer some…

Breakfast Quinoa

After spending the whole winter making overnight oats, I’m venturing out for other breakfast options that can be prepped ahead. I used to have arugula egg salad sandwich that I thought it might be interesting to use egg on quinoa with veggies as something to prep ahead.

Tempura Shrimp & Vegetables

Boxing Day, which is typically a British holiday in which you open Christmas gifts, arrived quite warmly, cool breeze and partly cloudy weather. It is a rest day but we are invited to have lunch at an ex-UNEP employee’s home near Karura Forest.

Meatless Mondays started out as a way for my boyfriend and I to have dinner together instead of eating out or working late. We also found it as a good habit to have for our quest to maintaining a healthy and fit lifestyle.

Mee Katang (Khmer Seafood Stir Fry)

When I used to live in Lowell, MA, surrounded by many Khmer food, I used to have my brother order out Mee Katang special from Red Rose. It is like fast food but with vegetables and meat. I was fortunate enough to watch my mom cook it at home that when I left, I was…

Fire Roasted Vegetables

Living so close to Costco has been amazing and difficult. Amazing that food is so available but difficult with what I want but can’t/shouldn’t have. The task with living in New York is carting everything back and finding places to store them. How does one bring it back? I’ve yet to use what I call…
